Second last in a set of Mega Man 2 biro Robot Masters.
Left Quick Man and Flash Man ‘til late as they seem least characterful in my mind, but was fun to draw!
Also included 2 smaller, recent doodles. One in a card to my girlfriend frayed-symphony and another from a quick little water colour+biro experiment.
Been replaying Oddworld New’n’Tasty. Remembering how charming the world of those games was and how much I was amused by Sligs. They had the best designs and the funniest voices.
Had this half done for ages and was dragging my heels on finishing it. Maybe I should go back and add a factory background.
First new lifedrawing session at work in AGES. I came ill prepared with only a tiny notebook and a biro, plus had to leave just over halfway through…
But it was nice on an otherwise stressful day. It’s very, very busy at the moment and there’s a sketch or two I’ve almost finished but haven’t had the time. Hopefully soon.
Alexander, The Forgotten vs Lady Chun-Li.
Rogue Legacy is incredibly addictive and charming as hell. Challenging but always manages to feel like progress. The perfect ‘just one more run D:’ game.
The graphical style of it really is gorgeous. The monsters are quite simple, but something about them really grew on me. Tried to capture the ‘stiff’ way the characters run and wield their swords, but not sure it worked amazingly.
Just a quick doodle I attacked with markers to express my affection for a wonderful game.
Ice Brain: Poler Kamrous v Zero.
The ice level of Mega Man Zero 2 and its music left me completely enamoured. I wanted to draw something like this aaages ago, so I’m happy I finally got around to it and really like how it turned out.
Staring at this flat coloured sketch, scared to do shading or a background because I’m afraid of ruining something I’m really liking.
Let’s see how this goes, I guess.
Marker practice in the form of a long overdue tribute to a boy and his tiger.
Ever since I was a little kid, I adored newspaper comic strips. The two that towered above all the others were Gary Larson’s The Far Side and Bill Watterson’s Calvin and Hobbes. As an adult I have the full collections and periodically go back and read them.
They influenced my sense of humour and imagination to a huge extent, they fostered my modern love for webcomics and desire to draw even though I am not an amazingly gifted artist. For that, I am eternally grateful.
It’s a magical world.
